The film was on its release the biggest and most expensive box-office disaster in British film history and was almost single-handedly responsible for a decade-long financial crisis in the industry after the massive losses scared off city financing for British films for years to come. See more »
In battle, Sgt. Maj. Peasy is depicted giving march and fire orders; in reality, it would be the job of an actual officer, and not an NCO. See more »
This movie is the most authentic film I have ever seen on this subject. Its use of historical accuracy is unmatched. People, cities and harbors,were dirty,sooty and garbage ridden as depicted in this film. Its use of language is outstanding (Donald Sutherland's english, Al Pacino's fragmented, broken speech) etc,. Anyone interested in history clamors for more movies such as this one with real authenticity, instead of the usual hollywood blockbuster style films that ignore attention to detail.
